"How will my pictures be delivered?"
Pictures purchased from chrisbatesartist.co.uk are printed and dispatched by professional printers or the artist himself.
Unmounted pictures are rolled in tissue paper to protect them and delivered inside a card tube that is sealed with solid plastic seals at both ends.
Mounted images are also wrapped in tissue paper and delivered in a card envelope in order to keep it rigid.
"Can I buy framed pictures?"
At this time framed images are not available - only unmounted photographs and artwork.
"How long will my picture take to arrive?"
In general pictures take 7-14 days to arrive from the date of purchase.
"What is giclee paper?"
Each picture gives the name of the kind of paper it is printed on, and I try to ensure the paper is both appropriate and the finish sympathetic to the image.
